Legal Help and a Non-profit Home for Your FOSS Project

Moderated by: Bradley M. Kuhn, Karen Sandler, Aaron Williamson
BoF
Location: E142

As they grow larger, FOSS projects need more than good coders and
documentors — they need legal support and organizational infrastructure
for continued success. The Software Freedom Law Center and the Software
Freedom Conservancy, respectively, provide these services to FOSS
projects.

At this BoF, we’ll briefly outline the services offered pro-bono to the
FOSS community by these organizations, and then open the floor to
discuss what challenges your project faces on these front.

We won’t be able to give formal legal advice at this session, but we can
help your project leaders begin to think about these questions and make
a plan for addressing them.
